The third and also the darkest Ristikiehtova full-length. Filled with unsavoury musical elements, false expectations and misplaced author pride, it is an audio trip few are eager to take. The concept this time is pretty abstract, mainly about Ristikiehtova itself and how I've felt lately. Hear it, if you feel compelled to.
If you for some reason find yourself enjoying this album,
feel free to spread it using any non-intrusive means you know.

1. Kuninkaallisen taipumuksen tyyssija (X. 1. 2009)
translate eng.: "the dwelling/resting place of a royal tendency"
päivä toisen jälkeen...
Kelvottomuus on pahe johon vain kuninkaallisilla on varaa
tämä musiikki on kelvotonta
tyyssija jossa vastakohdat yhdistyvät
day after day...
Being worthless is a vice only the royal can afford
this music is worthless
a place where the opposites combine"
